We are a young family of 5 heartily involved in sports & church activities. We love keeping fit and live on a quarter acre (1000m2) block in middle class Berwick, We have a large 7 bedroom house which includes a 3 bedroom upper floor apartment (which is where you will be staying). The main bedroom (Summer Room) has a Queen size bed & base. The living are has a stereo and 32" LCD TV with a media player with over 200 movies. Also included is your own private bathroom & toilet . A second bedroom (Autumn Room) has a Queen size bed. There is also a third bedroom with a single bed. Add to all this a separate access via an external stair so you can come & go as you please.
There is an in-ground pool to cool off in as well as dedicated on site parking. Fresh towels and linen, shampoo & conditioner provided.
We love meeting new people and have traveled via backpacker units as a family. You can eat upstairs in privacy as dining facilities are provided. Daryl works from home (downstairs) so there is always someone around the house to help with advice on local transport, eateries and things to see.
We are 2 minutes by car from the Monash (M1) Freeway entrance and 5 minutes bus ride (15 minute walk) from the Berwick railway station. Buses run every 20 minutes on weekdays and hourly on weekends. We are a 40 minute drive by car on the Monash Freeway (over 1 hour drive at peak hour) to Central Melbourne's shopping precinct , MCG and Etihad stadiums for AFL football, international cricket, Australian Open Tennis and all it's other attractions. Train takes about 70 mins to city. Only 1 hour drive to the Phillip Island Moto GP and access to Gippsland is just 5 minutes down the road. Access to the Great Ocean Road is just 90 mins away.
You can walk to over 10 different takeaway outlets and the supermarket in just 5 minutes and Berwick has some wonderful a'la carte restaurants. There is also an extensive network of bicycle trails which connect us with the South Eastern corridor of Melbourne and all the way into the city.
If you're arriving via the airport (Tullamarine or Avalon) then you can get the SkyBus to Southern Cross station (where the SkyBus terminates). Then ride the Pakenham Line train to Berwick Station. The train ride takes about 70 minutes. We can be contacted via mobile from the train or station to pick you up on arrival at Berwick. Alternatively you can catch the 839 bus from Berwick Station to 100m from our doorstep.
